Battlefield 4 Budget Build Performance

Battlefield 4 & Batman Arkham Origins

Battlefield 4 Budget Builds


Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 is the main game we were interested in, so we though it would be best to start this. We ran the system through a series of different tests, all at 1920x1080, but with Low, Medium, High, and finally Ultra settings.


As we can see here, the system can easily cope with BF4, even at more graphically demanding settings. The game is more than playable at Ultra settings, but if you're wanting to keep FPS above 60, you may choose to switch to high or medium settings.


Batman Arkham Origins

The Batman game series has always been popular, as well as being thoroughly enjoyable to play. The Batman series looks great, and doesn't need a particularly high end PC to get great frame rates. We ran the tests on the DX11 Enhanced setting, with three different options of anti-aliasing.

Again, we see very good frame rates here. We'll account the low minimum frame rates to glitches with the benchmark program since they aren't consistent with AA, and with those excluded, the system performs very well.

My steam box/LAN box was going to be an itx system for around the same price and its amazing how much more expensive the ITX AMD motherboards are. I had to really scale down the graphics (to a 650ti) and get a tiny SSD in order to stay in budget. All the good motherboards cost more than the cpu :l. Thats the issue with cheap OCable cpus I guess :s. In the end I also had to settle with this as a build. It was an easy sell though .

Interesting how surprisingly good the pentiums are at gaming. I really was expecting it to struggle alot more than it did. I wouldn't want a pentium for games like Star Citizen though.Quote

Going to show my brother in law this before he gets a console, nothing wrong with a console but he's turning what was once a powerful rig of a Core 2 Duo, Asus P5B Deluxe, 8GB RAM and a 4850 into a bit of a NAS as his NAS box is broke, and will get a console as well.

Keep telling him to join these forums and look at some of the smaller builds.

Edit: Okay there is something not right if my rig is only doing 20fps with Arkham Origins!Quote
